The hotel looks great and will def stay here if I come to Istanbul again After being ripped of big time by a taxi driver I asked at the hotel for directions to the police station. The people in this hotel were fantastic and wrote out my statement in Turkish. And then came with me to the police station we... More

I’ve stayed at this small hotel fairly frequently over the past year, using it as a layover stop on my way to Uzbekistan (last November) and Iran (this past June). I chose a single room each time. Pros: Perfect location, within walking distance to Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia, and all nearby shops. Unique interior with an... More

We stayed almost two weeks. The hotel has a perfect location in a quiet area, in the old city. Ayasofya is only one minute away. The rooms are clean and the stuff is friendly. We enjoyed the breakfast because the view is wonderful. The hotel is a good option for anyone and we will be back soon.

It's a small botique hotel that I stay 1 night. Not a high class hotel but with friendly personnel and passable services and facilities. Room was also small but comfort enough. Located in a quite street in Sultanahmet district.

The hotel is lovely, the location simply couldn't be better, in the heart of the old city, a stone's throw away from the main sites but still very quiet and peaceful. The staff were just so friendly. The rooms were small but comfortable and not 'mass-produced'. Beautiful pieces of art to look at and reflect upon in the rooms, corridors... More

We stayed in this hotel 5 years ago and we came back again this March because we liked it. This hotel is in perfect location, only a few steps away from the Hagia Sofia and Top Capi Museum. The rooms are clean, they changed the bed-clothes and the towel every day. The staff is very helpful and kind. The breakfast... More

The hotel is located close to all major sights at the heart of the old town district Sultanahmet. Prices are very reasonable. Good value for the money. Breakfast is served at the roof restaurant with beautiful sea view. My room was small but clean and cosy with sea view. A taxi stand is located right across the street, as well... More

The place is great for the price we paid. It'seems not the Holton so if you want newly refurbished or a lift go somewhere else. It has free breakfast, the room was clean and, the view from the room and breakfast lounge were great. Location is amazing for seeing all of the tourist destinations with no need for taxis. All...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
